Excerpts from Reviews

Booklist Magazine (published by the American Library Association)

"A running commentary from all four Davidoff family members helps crystallize examples--and keeps us all from taking ourselves too seriously. Good and useful common sense." Barbara Jacobs

The Midwest Book Review

"5 Star Review (on Many of the issues raised in the workplace are also common to family life, from the desire of the youngest to rival the oldest child to bullying and rivalry. Parenting The Office equates these lessons learned from children to business and family life alike, using case histories to discuss applications and clarify problems."
